can guarantee that if a hardworking person who worked 80-hour weeks
at two minimum wage jobs trying to make a living refused to pay

this simple reality, there's no reason why any level of government
should let hardworking Mexican citizens trying to make a living
continue to break the law by entering this country illegally - and
